Britain's Charlie Gillett has had a remarkable career, starting with his pioneering history of R&B, The Soundof the City, and continuing through today as a BBC world music DJ. With this double-disc compilation, Gillett culls from recent playlists to assemble a great super-set of music from all over-minus station IDs, news breaks and chatter of any sort.
